A Warning
From my good friend John, who quoted this on his Orthodox blog Ad Orientem  (with my own emphasis added): The general political direction of the [Western political] elite bears, without doubt, an anti-Christian and anti-religious character. We have been thr...

Trouble Ahead for U.S. Churches?
The Supreme Court is an anomaly. It is neither "Supreme" (since it can overrule itself at any time, and also be overruled by statute or constitutional amendment) nor -- after yesterday's decision -- a court. Here is how Justice Scalia described it in his di...

Klintonerdämmerung
Have been taking a break from blogging for family celebrations in the midst of some heavy legal work, but this was too good not to share, in light of the continuing scandal of Hillary's emails. It is a creative adaptation of another scene from that famous "...

Story
Introduction
An Episcopalian baptized and confirmed under the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. Things have not been the same since 1979, and my blog "Anglican Curmudgeon" is part of a long-time effort to understand why.
Bragging rights
I have started a second blog, "All Things Beethoven", to post some of my research on that composer and his music.
